  1. I was out yesterday doing a final hunt before the snow sets in here in Montana on the Judith River formation and found this claw along with this vertebra, no other bones around so possibly from the same animal. I have found theropod claws that are much smaller and this one is huge when compared. I searched for the tip but sadly couldn't find it. I assume because of the size it would be a tyrannosauroid but not certain. Can it be determined to be a toe claw or hand claw? Is the vertebra identifiable? @patrickhudson
  2. Hi! I have a couple of bones that I would love some help with. The first appears to be a metacarpal perhaps (?), about 2.5" long - of unknown origin. I received it in two pieces, with a bit of the surrounding matrix still intact. The matrix is rust-colored & grainy, almost similar to what you might find on a Spino tooth; although the fossil itself isn't colored like any spino specimen I've encountered, plus its a pretty small bone. Any thoughts on what it might be? Secondly, is a vertibra, perhaps caudal (?). Very small, roughly an inch squared. My assumption is that it is mamm

    Kem Kem Vertebrae ID Thread

    So, lets figure out vertebrae from the Kem Kem beds. As many of you know the Kem Kem beds has a pretty enigmatic palaeo fauna. There is some literature about it, but not a whole lot. Some of it is behind a paywall and much information is pretty scattered. So I got this idea that maybe we could combine our knowledge and information to collectively get a better picture of which bone belongs to which animal, in this case, vertebrae. I know some of you have some fantastic specimens in your collections, if we combine these in this thread we might be able to see some patterns. We probabl

    Cervical vertebra Morocco

    Hi everyone, I bought this fossil, it was labelled as a possible cervical vertebra section and comes from Morocco. Has anyone got any idea what animal it may have come from? Is it part of a vertebra? Hope you can shed some light on it. Thanks.

    Kem kem vertebra

    I got this vertebra from kem kem ,Morocco for quite a while and even make a topic for help in ID before ( maybe 2-3 mo ago ? not sure can't remember) . now I finally have time to clean & remove some matrix that cover this vertebra and I hope that could help in identification of this vertebra I appreciate every comment and opinion on ID this vertebra . Thank you. Guns.
  6. I found this at a good price. It seems legitimate.
  7. Hey everyone, I recently acquired this ichthyosaur vertebra that was originally collected in Penarth, south Wales, UK. What initially struck me was the vertebra's size, since it's by far the biggest one I have of any ichthyosaur: Now, other large ichthyosaur remains have been described from the very same location. The paper is freely available here: https://bioone.org/journals/acta-palaeontologica-polonica/volume-60/issue-4/app.00062.2014/A-Mysterious-Giant-Ichthyosaur-from-the-Lowermost-Jurassic-of-Wales/10.4202/app.00062.2014.full The cliffs at Penarth apparently conta
  8. Hello, I really just wanted to get some opinions on this fossil I saw online. It's already been sold but it was going for a good price! Is it real? Dimensions were listed as 5.6" tall, found in Morocco. It's from a dealer that seems legitimate but I can't help but be skeptical because of the price! So sorry, I'm very new to the fossil community. Thank you for your time.

    Reptile Vertebra

    Here is a small vertebra I found while at my Proboscidean dig spot. I was able to find that i closely matches a reptile vertebra, but i do not know what kind of reptile based off of size and that is only has 2 wings on the sides and not 4. What do you all think?

    Strange Grab Bag of Bones

    So over the past couple of posts, i have focused on the individual bones that I have found in the overburden dig site at my plant. One spot in particular has continuously been a gold mine, and have lovingly called my Proboscidean site, after the Proboscidean scapula fragments I first found there. Over the course of 14 months (4 to 6 hours per month) I have dug up more and more fragments of different bones that eventually piece together, but now i have started to find bones of other animals. With all this I have started to wonder if there is some bigger picture I am missing trying to ID each bo

    Large Mammal Vertebra Possibly?

    Here are some more vertebra that i had dug up where i have been piecing together a large shoulder blade. From what I could research, I think it is a sacral vertebra in the Proboscidean family. What do you all think?

    Sauropod vertebra?

    Any thoughts on this? Being sold as sauropod cetiosaurus vertebra from Kimmeridge Clay. 11cm x 12 x 5.5 The hole at the bottom, seller says is predation from a scavenger -- size and shape matching croc or pliosaur. I'm suspecting plesiosaur, looking at a drawing of cetiosaur verts I found online. This one seems too rounded. Any thoughts, much appreciated. Attached the drawing below too.

    Iguanodon vert?

    Wondering what people think of this? Being sold as Iguanodon vertebra from Hastings Bed formation. 16 x 12 x 8 It doesn't resemble other iguanodon verts I've seen for sale, so I'm wondering if might be a partial/just the top part of a vertebra, or another type of bone? Thanks for the help

    Endochrus? (Enchodus)

    I purchased this as an Endochrus Spine Section. I have since tried to find more information on the species, but a Google search only returns online listings, and no information pages. As far as Google is concerned, it seems the species doesn't exist. The whole piece is a little over 4 inches across, almost 5 at it's largest point. The vertebra itself is maybe 2 inches long, and almost 2 and a half tall. I have no information on it's origins. It was pretty cheap, so I am not freaking out about all of this, but I WOULD like to know if anyone has heard of an Endochrus, and if so, what is it? If n
  16. Hello, I saw these fossils, according to the seller they are dinosaur vertebrae, found in Hell Creek, but he does not mention any species or group of dinosaurs. What I want to know is if they look like dinosaurs to you, either ornithopod or theropod, and if they look like other hell creek fossils you've seen. Thanks in advance.

    Big Brook Vertebra

    Hey I found this while sifting and was not sure if it was a vert but i took it home and cleaned it up with a small electric engraver and dental pick and here it is. It looks like a vert but from what? biggest one I have found! Thanks!
  18. Seller offer a group of vertebra . seller claim that these group belong to Theropod vertebra from Carter country Montana , hell creek formation . i personally think that it may belong to other reptile or even a croc ? but i am not sure . would like to hear opinion from the community first. thank you
  19. I haven’t been getting out and about much now a days. The heat and Covid has been keeping me indoors for the most part. The weather is slowly changing to fall and I decided to hit up my white river spot. It’s been a couple months since I’ve been, but boy, the spot just keeps on giving. Right out the gate, I was harassed by a rattlesnake...apparently they do exist. After giving that little bugger plenty of breathing room, I began a several hour hike around my super secret, private property, land owner permission having spot! it wasn’t long before I found a large ancie

    Vertebra ? North Sulfur River

    I'm a rookie. This is my second post. I've been out on two "expeditions" and made some interesting finds. When I picked up this fossil?, I noticed it was caulked on the back side, I found that perplexing. North East Texas, Fannin County, Eagle Ford Group, Ozan Formation, North Sulfur River Bed. It appears to be a vertebra. Please help identify. Thanks!

    Dealing with marine algae

    Hello everyone, I found the below ichthyosaur vertebra on the beach at Wimereux two weeks ago. It had obviously been lying there for some time, as it was covered in green algae and barnacles. Based on the advise of various friends and the fact this rock seems to hard and massive to work through using just my Dremel, I'll be leaving the fossil in its matrix. However, I do want to clean it up from the algae and barnacles. As such, I used a 1:2 dilution of 14° household cleaning vinegar and a couple of sturdy brushes to remove most of the algae (dipping the br

    Amelia Island, FL Vertebra

    Anyone provide help with an ID on this vertebra? Try as I might, as a serious amateur I've hit the limits of my abilities and could use the collective wisdom. Assumption is that this is a vertebra. Found on the beach on Amelia Island, Florida. I find fossils there routinely and live there part of the year. I find this Forum invaluable to gain knowledge.
  23. I visited my favorite shark tooth site in the Miocene Burdigalian again today and along with the usual teeth I dug out the following objects. The first is obviously a vertebra, and I don't think it's fishy, but rather mammalish in my humble opinion. But I'm not at all sure about that. I've found teeth from Cervidae here before, so I'm thinking that maybe that's the case with the vertebra? Measurements: Ø13-15mm x15mm. long. I haven't got a clue on the next 2 items. The first is 10x4mm. and the second 15x5mm. Any suggestions would b

    White River Small Partial Vertebra ID

    Hello, everyone, Lately this summer I’ve been doing a bit of casual fossil collecting (with explicit permission!) on some land that a very close family friend owns in Weld County, Colorado that has a lot of exposure of the White River Formation, and I’ve collected a sizable amount of material including some pretty awesome finds. Being an amateur, I need some help identifying some of the fossils I’ve collected. Since the forum has a photo upload limit per post, I’ll be making a few threads for different finds, I hope that is ok. This is a small partial verteb
